Instructions

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the vegetables

  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato into ½-inch pieces.
  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1½ cups [3 cups].
  • Strip the collard green leaves from the stems; cut the leaves crosswise into ½-inch-wide strips.

2

Cook the vegetables

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sweet potato, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
In the same pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Working in batches if needed, add the collard greens and cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, 3 to 5 minutes.
Stir in the apple cider vinegar and molasses and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the liquid is thickened slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the sweet potato and toss to combine. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the vegetables cook, prepare the chicken.

Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper and the blackening spice blend.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken, skin side down, and cook until the skin is well browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Turn and cook until the meat is firm and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Serve

Transfer the sweet potato and collard greens to individual plates, top with the chicken, and serve.
